The LADIES return to DISH on this TUMULTUOUS season! Topics TOUCHED include Vicki Gunvalson’s oft-repeated declaration that she’s looking to marry boyfriend Steve Lodge, though they are not yet engaged,heated arguments between besties, as usual pairs are split between the couches that flank host Andy Cohen. Gina Kirschenheiter, Kelly Dodd and Tamra Judge make up the left couch, while Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson and Emily Simpson fill out the right.
Emily is at the heart of multiple shouting matches in the preview, bringing a binder of “evidence” — what largely looks like printouts of tweets and Instagram posts — to her first-ever reunion. She and Kelly get into it over Kelly’s beef with Emily’s husband, Shane, and the moment earlier this season in which Emily threatened to kill Kelly. Emily attempts to defend her choice of words by saying that only counts as a threat if the person being threatened reasonably thinks their life is in danger. When Shannon brings up how Emily had to be restrained in the moment, giving weight to the idea that, yeah, maybe Kelly thought she was in danger, Emily screams, “I’m not talking to you!” at Shannon, sending the whole reunion into a state of shock.
